RECIPE: Roasted Tomato Soup

My parents had an abundance of cherry and grape tomatoes this summer.  My cousin Brenda told me about a recipe she got from a Rachael Ray magazine for Roasted Tomatoes.  So I decided to give it a try.  Instead of keeping them for pasta salads, I decided to puree everything in the food processor.  After that, I poured everything in my fine mesh strainer to remove seeds and skins.  I had to make this over a couple of days and so it was placed in the fridge in a large plastic pitcher.  After I strained everything, it was still chilled and it tasted SO GOOD!  I decided to add a sour cream flower to the top of the soup and we ate it with grilled cheese sandwiches.  So pretty and so yummy!

 They grew yellow and red cherry and grape tomatoes.

 This basil is from my garden.

 Toss everything with oil and salt and pepper.

Sorry I didn't get all the pictures, but this is the final result.  So pretty!

Hope you have a great day!

Enjoy!

I have always wanted to love tomato soup, but never acquired the taste for it. This recipe does sound delicious though, so I may have to give it another shot.

I would love it if you could stop by my very first blog hop debuting today and share this post!

Have a great day!

How pretty! I would have been lazy and just plopped it in there! Actually, I've never even strained my tomato soup, I just puree the whole thing. I'm coming to your house for the GOOD stuff! Thanks!
